Orchard Shopping Walk (Self Guided), Singapore

The Orchard Road district takes in the main shopping streets in Singapore. It is a delight if you need to find a little something special and provides unbridled joy if you want nothing more than to indulge in glorious bouts of retail therapy.

Point your shoes toward Scotts Road, the heart of the shopping district, hosting several popular shopping and entertainment complexes. They include the Far East Shopping Center, the Far East Plaza and the Scotts Tower. Fronting the road is ION Orchard, eight levels of shops, boutiques and stores with more than 300 outlets. Among them are the six duplex flagship stores of Cartier, Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Giorgio Armani, Prada and Louis Vuitton.

In addition to the fabulous malls on Scotts Road, you will find hotels and restaurants for all types of diners and budgets, from fast food options all the way up to exclusive eateries. The entire 1.4-mile (2.2-kilometer) one-way boulevard is set among landscaped green expanses that are bursting with color from their plants and flowers. Another popular shopping destination within the locale, especially if you are interested in all things Asian, is the Tanglin Shopping Center. Purchase antiques, heavenly pieces of exotic art and high quality hand-woven carpets.
